This version of Figure 1 includes Impact Factor leaderboards — a new way to see who’s who on the platform — and this pearl from @Figure1Questions:
"Patients taking fluoroquinolones may be at risk for both tendonitis and tendon rupture of the Achilles tendon, shoulder, hand, or other areas."

Ratings and Reviews
Not for the squeamish. A must have for the medical professional! This app is for serious professionals, and should be respected, as the cases in here are real patients. Following the natural order of comments is confusing, however and makes it unpleasant to both comment and or follow comments. The new commenting format continually pushes the most popular comment (even if it is not relevant or correct) to the top of the page and leaves all of the other comments askew. Needs to be fixed!!
This app was fantastic to start, but has become a sad community of apparently ill-prepared providers as well as support personnel who seem to misunderstand scope of practice. I have never seen such egregious use of antibiotics as I see posted in cases on this app, as well as LPNs, RNs and EMTs who think hey have more training than they do. There are about three users who post valid, evidence-based information, otherwise it seems to be an outlet for nurses and EMTs who wish they were doctors, and bottom-of-the-barrel med students who really should know their stuff better. Embarrassing.
I love the app it just not perfectly optimized for the iPhone XR. When I want to go back to the main page the back button is below the clock, it is frustrating. Please solve this. Otherwise it is really good!
